Lilacs vs. Socks April 29, 2010 Sock Knitting The lilacs are growing. But so are the socks. I never thought I’d beat the lilacs but I just might do it.

Those are really pretty. I really love purples and greens together. So close and they’re both so pretty!! I’m sure you’ll have them done by the end of the day. 🙂 So weird that the lilacs are blooming in April. They are one of my favorite flowers. Such a heady fragrance too. I wish my DH hadn’t torn out our lilac bush. They are one of my favorites. I know you will! I was so inspired, I broke down and bought some lilac colored sock yarn from Birds Nest Yarn on Etsy. It’s gorgeous. And I live near the arboretum, so I can celebrate Lilac Sunday! You can do it! Go, Carole, go! I know you can do it 🙂 Love the green & purple together, gorgeous!! Yes you will! I could bet ……..ah, whatever! Lilacs look to pretty and your socks are lovely also. I can smell the lilacs now!! Love the contrasting toes and heels! I miss lilacs! And I LOVE that yarn! I knew you would beat the lilacs. I like the green on the heel. One of my favorite combinations is purple and green together (ha – I’m wearing that combo today as luck would have it). So pretty. You are zooming! Look at you go! I knew you could do it! 🙂 Darn it, I think I’ll lose my bet! Love those colors! I feel inspired… My lilacs are about where yours are, but I’m not making socks to go with ; ) I walked to the library yesterday evening and the whole neighborhood smells like crabapple blossoms. Dang that’s some fast knitting. Can I send you a couple projects? ;op Speaking of which…ordered the yarn today. ;o) Woo Hoo! (New to your blog.) Both pictures are gorgeous but i think I like the socks better! 🙂 I still think it’s going to be to close to call. Love the color!! They are both lovely, but the lilacs make me a bit homesick for my childhood home. We had lilacs all along the back fence, and every year a bunch went to a favorite teacher. And both are gorgeous! Two of my neighbors had lilacs and both have cut them down over the last few years…it breaks my heart because I absolutely loved them. Love the contrasting heels and toes! WOW! That’s fast! The socks look great! (but oh those lilacs, I can almost smell them from here!) (((hugs))) Pretty socks! I just got a whiff of a lilac bush yesterday. They are blooming around these parts. Beautiful socks! You knit soooo fast! Hope I do…someday! 🙂 The lilacs and the socks are great. Perhaps it’ll be a photo finish. Heh. I crack myself up. Comments are closed.
